In Norway, all CV's include some basic information like:
- Date of birth
- Contact details, phone numbers
Where do I enter this information on the Careers site?

The way Careers works is that when an employer finds your CV (though the paid candidate search) and decides you are worth contacting, you receive the message via email (and it also shows up in the SE "inbox"). You then have the choice of replying to the message (or ignoring it) and marking your stance towards the
company position you were messaged about as Interested or Not interested. If you reply and choose "interested", the employer will get your email address and you can continue talks from there, using whichever medium that suits both parties.
Of course, you can also make your CV publicly visible on the web, and if you wish, you can add your contact info or any other details to the free textfields, as George and Korneel pointed out. (And I think it does make sense to have some contact info there.) Personally I mention my email in "personal statement" section, but have left out other contact info and date of birth (although those often appear in traditional CVs here in Finland too).
